Welcome to the July issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter

Words From Jerry
Hello fellow Weatherfun members and welcome to the July Weatherfun newsletter.

I hope all of you are enjoying a great summer and the weather in your back yard has been a perfect Jerry 12. It has been warm here at Weatherfun Headquarters, and you all know how much I love that.

So, far the hurricane season has been fairly inactive, but as you all know the most active part of the hurricane season is still well ahead of us. Tornados as you know still prove to be very serious and many of our members have suffered personal injury and loss of property from these severe storms. If you are in an area where severe weather is approaching please take all precautions, and do what the authorities tell you to do.

The big news this month is the up coming 4th Weatherfun Family Reunion that will be held in and around the Warren, Rhode Island area July 14th to the 17th. Plans are continuing at this hour for the best reunion yet. We have members coming from Texas, Florida, Maryland, New York (Long Island), Massachusetts, and of course Rhode Island. As I type this newsletter we still have room at the Quality Motor Inn, but the rooms are filling up fast, so if you are even thinking of heading up this way, why not make your reservations now. Professor Bill is putting the finishing touches on his now famous Weather Quiz. Lynn, is also working on this year's prizes. Susan is working on the Weather Food Menu, and I am getting the Weatherfun Deck ready. Decorations and special lights are going up, and we are ready at this end folks. So, as the man on TV say: Come on down to Rhode Island for a grand time.

Enjoy your summer, but please remember to be safe and keep an eye to the sky.
